I had colon surgery 4 years ago. My colon literally ripped in two from severe constipation & diverticulitis. I take Relistor injections (which is a opioid blocker). Miralax, senna, mineral oil used on occasion. I feel like I just need to get cleaned out. Will Magnesium Citrate pills do that? ...

I was given some amitiza samples to try for opioid induced constipation. In four days I was impacted. It is terrible. I have gone back to miralax and stool softeners every day. It works, but at 3-6 days I have a huge cramping BM. Anyone else with OIC have anything that REALLY helps??
